The Firefly Brigade is a citizen’s volunteer action group formed in 1999 to work for clean air and a habitable, people-friendly environment in our cities.
The fireflies have fled the city because they could not stand its dirty air. All of us cyclists, pedestrians, commuters, even those who ride cars who live, work and raise families in the city may suffer the same fate. We continue to dirty our city’s air with polluting vehicles and factories. As a result, we also risk disappearing like the fireflies.
Why resign ourselves to this fate?
We have a choice. We can fight for clean air and bring the fireflies back.
Tour of the Fireflies
The group organizes an annual cycling caravan known as the Tour of the Fireflies. The tour attracts cyclists from all walks of life and of all ages for a treat of a bike tour around the cities of Metro Manila; still to promote cycling as an environment friendly and healthy form of transportation around the cities.
